Breaking (or rather shifting) my blogging chain

May 13, 2015 / Discussion

Tomorrow will mark exactly one full month of blogging each day. Myself and Megg have been challenging each other to blog every day for the past month. It’s been fun but I’ve decided to bow out of the challenge.

My first reason for dropping out is because I need to put my focus elsewhere. Blogging can take hours out of your day and I’ve just got too many other priorities that I need to take care of. The second reason is that I feel like I’m not blogging about anything really useful. You would have noticed that the last few blog posts have all been basic Ruby how-to’s. That’s a product of having to come up with something new to write about everyday.

I must say though, I’ve really enjoyed the momentum/results that are gained from creating a chain of actions and I’m going to apply this principle in two other areas:

  1. I’m going to start writing open source code every day. 1 line or 100 lines - it doesn’t matter as long as I commit code.
  2. I’m also going to study each day. This will be the hardest to do with the little time I have, but it’s very important to my long term goals.

I’m thinking about closing my blog down at some point and having a single page website here. I’m not making that decision just yet, it will depend on whether or not I still post here in the long term.

Bye for now :)
